  • Supporters of Romulo Avelica Gonzalez, who was arrested by ICE agents while taking his daughters to school, say a judge’s decision may help the Highland Park man avoid deportation. The judge decided to remove a prior misdemeanor conviction from Gonzalez’ record. But the INS said Gonzalez, who is in the country illegally, is still subject to deportation. KPCC
  • Metro will be offering free WiFi on 150 buses under a pilot program to test the service before making it available across its fleet. Green decals will identify the buses with WiFi. The Source
